James A. Michener called Bora Bora “the most beautiful island in the world,” and his Bali Hai, immortalized in song in the musical South Pacific, is believed to have been modeled on Moorea. Painter Paul Gauguin came to Tahiti for inspiration, and W. Somerset Maugham’s novel The Moon and Sixpence was inspired by that artistic journey. French Polynesia continues to create wonder in those who visit—and you can experience it in just one week on our best-selling itinerary.
As the specialists to this idyllic region, Paul Gauguin Cruises reveals the ancient traditions, breathtaking scenic beauty, easygoing spirit and warm hospitality of French Polynesia as no one else can. We have also been given the honor of being voted Global Traveler’s Best Small-Ship Cruise Line winner 2019 for the fourth consecutive year.
Designed specifically to sail these turquoise waters, the ship’s informal ambience reflects the relaxed nature of the region. The Gauguin also brings on board the Polynesian culture and joie de vivre only the experts to the region can share. A much-loved troupe known as Les Gauguines — Tahitians who serve as staff, entertainers and storytellers — add a uniquely South Pacific touch to life on board. Best of all, The Gauguin offers an all-inclusive experience, with airfare from Los Angeles and ground transfers in Tahiti, luxurious ocean-view accommodations, gratuities, 24-hour room service, bottled water, soft drinks and select wines and spirits, private beach retreats, guest hosts and lectures, and entertainment included throughout your voyage — all included in the cruise fare.
All along the way, you’ll enjoy warm Polynesian hospitality, luxurious amenities, gourmet dining and our extraordinary all-inclusive value — all at savings of 50 percent off standard cruise fares plus included round-trip airfare from Los Angeles (LAX) or San Francisco (SFO)!
